Interview with the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiller

Many know him as the Emperor Misha, Darth Misha or the Rottweiller. We usually address him as simply Misha, and we want to thank his royalness for allowing this humble blog to do his first time ever, exlusive interview. So, on with the show. Our interview with the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiller. A little warning, this interview is about a mile long.

Homespun Bloggers Radio, Program #11, released!

In this edition of HBR:
  • Andrew Ian Dodge of Dodgeblogium brings the London Report, a tribute to the pioneer blogger "Mama Bear", and his experience with the digitial distribution of music.
  • At Andrew's suggestion, we have a song by a friend of his, Mitch & the Distractions, about celebrities who like to get photo ops of them "Wavin' at the Poor".
  • Jay Dean, of The Radical Centrist and The Bird's Eye View, warns that politicians tend to package up a problem and a solution to that problem in a way that is more often self-serving
  • Doug Payton, of Considerettes, gives his post-mortem on the vote to bring the troops home now. The Democrats got what they asked for, but not what they wanted.

Be sure to check out this week's Homespun Symposium below.


A change coming in African-American voting patterns?

An historic first; an local NAACP leader switched to the GOP. Does this portend things to come better than the polls do?

Time for a new notebook

and I don't mean a computer--the old fashioned, use a #2 pencil, 6" x 8", spiral bound, hard cover, lined paper notebook. I don't write these blog entries out of the air, you know, (well, sometimes I do). I read and take notes in long hand, then I think and decipher my scribbles and look for links to see what American Daughter or Dr. Sanity or Jane Galt or Neo-Neocon and Barbara Nicolosi are writing about. Usually, they aren't blogging about my topics, but that takes another two hours. Anyway, a notebook can last for three months, but the last one was begun on September 1, and I had way too much to say about Katrina and the liberals who claimed the federal government should be the first responder. So by November 1, I only had 15 pages left. I actually ran out on the 14th, and was scribbling in margins and on the covers. So today, it is officially, NEW NOTEBOOK DAY.

Anyway, check this out.

Justice Reaffirmed

Some how I missed the first decision made by the Mississippi Supreme Court on October 13 to deny bond to Edgar Killen. That despicable member of the degenerate Klu Klux Klan who played a direct role in the murders of three civil rights workers, James Chaney, Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman in 1964. I was disgusted when Judge Gordon released him on bail.

Shut Up and Fill the Prescription

There has recently been a great push in the world of women's health to consider prescription birth control (oral contraceptives, IUD, DepoProvera, etc.) not only a "right" but indeed a necessity - the "standard of care," if you will. The fact that ever-growing numbers of registered pharmacists are refusing to fill legal prescriptions for such birth control has caught the attention of quite a few powerful pro-choice and "feminist" groups, who have made it their goal to force such professionals by law to fill all such prescriptions with no questions asked. As a practicing pharmacist, I would like to try to address this issue.

Homespun Symposium XXXVII

All...again I must apologize to the ranks for not keeping up with the weekly topic. Sometimes the 9-5 job just seems to want more time than it deserves.

This week saw a lot of commotion on both sides of the aisle in Congress, so I thought that our esteemed representatives deserved a little attention here by the learned folks that respond to the Symposium question.

Without further's the 37th Symposium question...

What do you make of the "up or down" vote that would have demanded the immediate withdrawl of all American forces from Iraq?

As always, there is no right or wrong answer...only yours that you wish to share.

Please feel free to post it as a comment to this post OR you can email it to me at MajorDad1984 - at - gmail - dot - com.

Thanks for your support!

Dagney's Rant

California Has Lost It!

What has happened to the state I grew up in? What is it about a 12 year old child informing her parents if she wants to have an abortion that doesn't sound reasonable to you, Californians? What about that simple question do you not understand, folks? A law, with acceptable caveats for exceptions doesn't make sense to you? What? Are you all NUTS?

Don't Blame the Pagans!

You idiots! This is a marketing ploy, pure and simple."

My Story - Part 1

From the information that the enemy left behind at the headquarters, we quickly found out what we were in for. We were outnumbered by a hundred at the least. It would be a suicide mission. Right then and there we made a pact, that the three of us would fight to the last breath, the last drop of blood, to defend our family and our homeland. As we ran out and headed towards the field, we knew we would not make it out alive, but still charged ahead into the enemy fire.


Eating the Floor

It's a very evocative phrase, isn't it? Falling on your face, wiping out on a bike, being some sort of wood and carpet eating monster, being the victim of a beatdown or passing out drunk...

Just who is politicizing the war?

The Democrats were out with their talking points seconds after Bush's Veteran's Day speech. Shock. Horror. He's politicizing the war!!!! He's finally, finally, pointing out what we all know--they were all convinced and supporting the issues that brought us to Iraq when they thought they'd get some votes. I hope he keeps it up. He's sticking by his words--let them do the same.

Stop The ACLU

Top Ten Reasons To Stop The ACLU

Stop The ACLU was started on February 9th, 2004. We started with high hopes, and we realized we were facing a goliath. There were many reasons why we thought the ACLU needed to be countered, and they are numerous. We wanted to provide a way to inform the public of the ACLU’s agenda, as the MSM sugar coated it. We wanted to be a central database for people to gather, exchange ideas, and get actively involved in real ways of stopping them. It is a monumental task, exhausting, time consuming, and often frustrating. But it is a fight worth fighting.

Secular Liberals: The "Useful Idiots" For Radical Islam

As secular liberals pull further and further away from the real causes they claim to champion, Christianity, merely by being what it is, reminds them of their own hollow core. And, secular liberals see anything that makes them ashamed of themselves as an oppressor. Therefore, regardless of the real barbarity of radical Islam, secular liberals will always see Christians as their greatest threat.

Worldview from the Left

Let’s summarize the current worldview of Democrats around the nation. Feel free to jump in and fill in anything that I may have missed. I will make this a running post and transpose any decent suggestions into the main post.

Philippians 4:13 – The Most Misinterpreted Verse in America

Again, picture the beauty queen all decked out in high heels and a bikini. The final choice for the winner is announced and the nice Texan girl wins. As she is interviewed she tries to give glory to God and says, “I just want to give glory to God, for I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. What is wrong with this picture other than the high heels and the bikini?


Three! Three! Three!

Three posts in a row, for some reason. Well, cos i stopped for class and I'm now going to bed. Well, off to exercise and shower and then go to bed. I'd tell you more, but I don't want to disseminate propaganda.

For the Record - Rockefeller on WMDs circa October 2002


It's time for a political advertisement knitting together Clinton's, Gore's, Hillary!'s, Rockefeller's, Kerry's, etc.'s various statements over the years warning against Saddam's bio, chem, and nuclear programs.

Confused Americans for Truth - The Curse of Inventory Profits

Obscene oil profits are back in the news. Currently, they're taking a back seat to the whole Iraq war intelligence thing, but that can't last forever.

1715 The Bill Gates Malaria Gift

It was sad to see on ABC News two nights ago the news of the Bill and Melinda Gates gift to develop drugs to fight malaria. Yes, thousands of Africans die of malaria every day, but those deaths are unnecessary. Until Americans were duped by Rachel Carson's misinformation, good progress was being made against this terrible disease. Since 1972 when the EPA banned its use, millions have died needlessly. This "do-gooder" impulse we Americans have has killed more Africans than the infamous slave trade of the 17th and 18th centuries. Even if this experimental vaccine works, it won't be ready for another five years, which means many more years of death for Africans. ABC never even mentioned there is another option. Malaria was well under control from the 1940s-1970s. And now without the spraying of homes, it has emerged again in the last 30 years as a killer. It was completely unnecessary.


Some disingenuousness to note among the Democratic reaction to Alito. But first, some background.

Democrats had no qualms about replacing a moderately conservative Byron White with a liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In spite of ideological differences, and respecting the fact that Clinton had the right to choose who he wished as a result of winning the election, Republicans voted for her 96-3. Ginsburg was not an ideological replacement for White; she was a shift to the left. In addition, according to the paper here (PDF format, see page 9), Justice Stephen Breyer was even further to the left of who he was replacing--Blackmun--than Ginsburg was. (Note: I make no claim regarding the methodology used in that paper in rating the justices; I'm just using it as a general indicator of ideology.) Blackmun was quite conservative while Breyer shows up as a centrist on the chart. Again, Republicans didn't invoke ideology, and confirmed Breyer 91-9.
